Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has signed a new contract that keeps him at the club until 2023 with an option to extend for a further year.
DeGea moved to Old Trafford in 2011 from Spanish side Atletico Madrid and has made 367 appearances for the Red Devils. He has won the Premier League, the FA Cup, League Cup, and the UEFA Europa League.
“It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and the opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honor. Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club. Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together,” the Spaniard said.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar was delighted to have his number one goalkeeper commit his future at the club.
“I am delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club. Over recent years, David has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs. David is a fantastic person and his outstanding quality provides the perfect base to our defense,” Ole Gunnar is quoted on the club’s official website.
The deal ends months of speculation linking De Gea with a move back to Spain to join Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. De Gea had also been linked with Fench giants Paris Saint Germain.
